Dry reference

Technical paper 35: Moisture measurement in the historic environment, published by Historic Environment Scotland in 2021, defines dry reference as: ‘Data obtained from a sample or area presumed to be unaffected by moisture ingress or other damp problems. NB. The substrate will not have zero moisture content. It will be assumed to have equilibrated to ‘normal’ environmental conditions.’

See also: Wet reference.
